Got a special contest prize later this week: an unopened set of 1991 Pro League Bass [trading] Cards. Not only that, I also have three separate, autographed  cards from Shaw Grigsby, Mike Folkestad and Tommy Martin, as well as a handful of “singles” from the original “Big League” Bass trading cards set–even one of the creator of the set, Michael Jones.

All these were donated by Caroline Fenton, daughter of late San Diego area outdoor writer Rolla Williams, who passed in 2004. Williams’ 36-year career covered much of the “golden era” of the San Diego City Lakes, including the Florida bass boom, the Pisces Bass Club, and the several historic local figures in bass fishing.

The contest will provide several winners, but will require some knowledge of old bass tackle and San Diego bass fishing history. Will you be ready?
